airlines put together. 50% of people that travel this distance. and between washington d.c. and new york city, amtrak carries twice as many passengers as all airlines come bind. today it carries 75% of inner city travel letters between new york and washington. amtrak has done all this with the threat of funding cuts and privatization especially of the profitable northeast corridor hanging over its head. we know that in other parts of the world privatization of high speed passenger rail has tried and failed to solve the problems it was intended to solve. these plans were almost always preceded by funding cuts, system i can safety and reliability problems caused a great deal of upheaval in the transportation and forced countries to renational lies a system. with that being said, we think that amtrak's long-term next general plan for the northeast corridor provides a temp plate for a public private partnership that is worth discussing. if the partnership does not reduce the public interest or the interest of the brotherhood of lock motive engineers and other skilled workers. further they be
'll be available for talks, adding ohio has both cell phone service and airports. darren gersh, nbr, washington >> susie: that stalemate over the fiscal cliff weighed on the markets today, despite some encouraging reporton the economy. investors shrugged off news that initial jobless claims fell more than expected during the latest week, retail sales bounced back in november, and wholesale prices declined last month. by the close, the dow tumbled 75 points, the nasdaq fell 22 and the s&p was off nine points. despite that pessimism, many investment managers and analysts are feeling optimistic about 2013. a new investor survey says the u.s. stock market will be the best performing stock market in the world. for details, john rogers joins us. he's c.e.o. of the cfa institute that conducted the survey. so john, the u.s. stock market ranked as the best performer. if we look at the charge of coming in in second place, china and brazil. why the vote of confidence considering all these concerns about the fiscal cliff? >> you're right, susie. it's interesting. it's a happy holiday season for investors.
, chief political correspondent for the "washington examiner". good morning to you. so many questions remain. first off why did they make this move now? >> because time was running out and the administration, i think, hoped that opposition among republicans in the senate to rice would diminish but it didn't. the thing that really killed it, they understood, john mccain, lindsey graham, kelly ayotte opposed her. the thing that killed it when she met susan collins who introduced her at her confirmation hearing and been a rise supporter and said there were serious questions about the nomination. at that point the handwriting was on the wall. bill: she is considered a moderate, if you have a good chance of getting through that would be the sign you have a chance but what graham just said, she was the most politically compliant person they could find, that's loaded. >> well i mean this goes back to what she said in the aftermath of those benghazi attacks when she said it wasn't a terrorist act. it was the result of spontaneous protests against that islamic video. we know that susan rice wa
dealing with a line-up for the washington nationals. you've got a string of great players, just trying to figure out the right batting order. kerry could be secretary of state. hagel could become secretary of defense. you could see jack lew the current chief staff move over to the secretary of treasury. tom donelan move over to be chief of staff and then there's the natural opening for susan rice. she becomes national security advisor, close to the president. back in the washington mix and in a position to still help the president execute his policies. >> eliot: joe, i was with you on everything you said except the baseball metaphor. we in new york forget you have a baseball team in washington. a moment transitory time to have a team that can play above .500. did john mccain know about this before it was announced publicly? did white house call him and say okay john, you win this one but we want something back. we're going to give this to you. be gracious but here's what we expect in terms of a b or c? what do you thin
it really sad. i love washington and i just don't like what has happened at this point. it's just very unpleasant and sad. and something that a very very good public servant deserves or nobody deserves frankly. >> one of the big challenges for the next secretary of state will be syria and our own mccormick spoke with secretary panetta and learned he is sending two missile batteries to turkey including 400 members of the u.s. military to help. does that signal a greater u.s. military involvement? >> what it signals is turkey is a member of nato. i have just come from turturkey. it has very serious issues with the number of refugees coming in. as a nato member we are really have to and want to and are committed to defending turkey so i think it is a 98nato issue and shows a sign we do not want the problems in syria to spread outside the borders. >> if in fact they begin to move chemical weapons, what should the united states and turkey and other country do so? >> people are very concerned about the use of the chemical weapons and also lack of control over them. and i
